No Cook Overnight Oatmeal Chia Breakfast Pudding

I have had a version of this recipe every day for breakfast the last 2 weeks, and I am a little obsessed.
I got the recipe from Oh She Glows, and she, too, is obsessed and warned that it could happen to me.  It did, so don’t say I didn’t warn YOU!
These are originally named Vegan Overnight Oats, but the ingredients are flexible, so they do not have to be vegan.  I renamed them because to me, it is a bit like eating a textured pudding since you eat them cold.
Just throw the ingredients together the night before, add a spoon of peanut butter or almond butter and some maple syrup (or agave) in the morning, and you have an instant, HEALTHY, and FILLING breakfast.
I was skeptical at first, but I am so glad I tried them!  They have been perfect to throw into a small mason jar with a lid and take as a “to go” breakfast or healthy snack.
They are incredibly filling, and there are all kinds of versions one could make. I have added ground flax seeds to make them even more healthy, and I have also added my protein shake powder in place of the banana a couple times.


Easy Overnight Oatmeal Chia Breakfast Pudding

PM Ingredients

1 banana, mashed

1/3 cup regular oats

2/3 cup almond milk (or regular, soy or coconut milk) 

2 Tbls Chia seeds

1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract


Mix all together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.


AM Ingredients

peanut butter or almond butter

maple syrup, honey or agave nectar


Add to taste and serve cold.  Enjoy!


This nutritional information below includes:

 1/3 cup oats, 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, and 1 small banana.



If you add 1 Tablespoon of ground flax, it brings the total to

 13 grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein!!

The peanut butter is even MORE protein.

Not a bad way to start the day!! No wonder this keeps me full clear up to lunch time!


How about a chocolate version? Chocolate Chia Oats are so good with any type of nut butter.


{my girls use the Chocolate Peanut Butter version as a super healthy apple dip!}


A little bit about:

Chia Seeds


Chia seeds and I are becoming fast friends.  Why?

~the are jammed packed with protein and minerals and healthy fats and fiber

~they provide more

plant based

Omega 3’s than any other food, even FLAX

~they have 5 GRAMS of fiber PER TABLESPOON!

~they are flavorless and dissolve in juice, soups, stews, shakes etc..

~they are FILLING!

What about you? Have you ever had chia oats?

Can you imagine eating your oats cold? I was skeptical, but then tried it and LOVE it.
